Overall, this facility provided a lovely, out of the way business stay, with great customer service, a warm staff, and really nice accommodations. The facility is a bit difficult to get to because of its location, and the need to do a u turn once you pass the hotel to get there on a one way causeway. But once there, great service starts at the front door. There is valet parking or DIY parking, either convenient. Front desk staff were really great, and answered all my questions easily. Room was superb, with a view of the water, so I could wake up to the sunrise. Bedding and bathroom were well appointed. I ate food that was through their meeting catering, and it was good. I did not use their restaurant.
Downsides to this location include where they are. You are kindof off on your own campus. Don't expect to walk anywhere, and there's no convenient drug store on the corner for whatever you forgot. The other downside is the significant charge the airport taxis charge after dark - a minimum $15-20 charge for what would normally be a $5 cab ride. That's not the hotel's fault - just know it ahead of time and work to catch the hotel's hourly shuttle back and forth to the airport.
Luxurious accommodations and great customer service will help me get back to this hotel!
